When you give a dog a birthday... | Dog Cake Smash | Nashville Photographers

When you give a dog a birthday...

she's going to want a cake.

When you give a dog a cake...

well...

she EATS IT!

I really wanted to make this a story a-la If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, but let's face it...German Shepherds love to eat, and it's not much more complicated than that.

Violet came to our family last year after my on call life became a lonely one every other weekend when my family would travel to Southern Illinois as we always have to visit my two amazing stepsons. Being a birth photographer, I don't get to make those trips as often, and I'm often quite sorrowful as my husband and girls drive away and I stay behind to work. I announced to my husband upon their return one weekend many months ago...baby, I think I need a dog.

And there was Violet.

Spunky, wild puppy that she was...the largest pup in an unexpected litter a couple towns over...it was love at first sight. Our home is a little hairier these days (no really, why didn't anyone tell me JUST how much they shed?!), and our bed is a little more crowded (because naturally she curls right up with me and Wesley each night; she's child number 5, not just a pet in this house), but our hearts are so full.

Happy first birthday to the best anti depressant a girl could have. You're my best furry friend, Violet. I'm so thrilled you're my pup.

Liam is One...Dr. Seuss Cake Smash Session {Nashville, TN Photographer AluraWayne Photography}

One of my favorite things is when I get to document my birth clients from maternity through birth through newborn...and then still get visits from them as their children grow up!! This is Liam, whom I had the honor of photographing as he entered this world just a year ago!

His first birthday was adorable with a Dr. Seuss theme...though he needed a little extra persuasion with his cake!!

You are strong. You are worthy. You are loved.

Maternity in Brentwood

I love rich, contrast-y colors in my editing...so when this beautiful red headed momma with milky skin wanted photos with my rich plum dress I was SO excited to see how they would turn out!

 

Any maternity mommas out there want to get photographed in this dress? This is one you can choose from when you book with us!
